This week, my box arrived within six days, arriving three days earlier than the UPS Tracking claimed it would arrive. I think that they must give a higher tracking estimation, so that we get all excited when it arrives "early". UPS is playing psychological games with me, only made worse by my Rocksbox obsession.
When I saw the pictures of this week's box, I was very excited. Box four contained two of my wishlist items. I was certain that I'd buy something from this box.
Take a really good look at the picture above of the Perry Street Morgan Necklace. I was anticipating it to be small and delicate, more like a ball of clustered jewels. This is what I got.
I paired it with a teal Trouve sweater from 2014 to try to show it off. I really disliked it, probably the most of any Rocksbox piece that I've received. It was clunky, with a heavy, unadjustable chain that hit at a funny spot on my chest. It looked like something that I would have wanted when I was thirteen. Not that I think you need to necessarily "dress your age", but this piece was definitely not for me. Here are some close-up shots.
The Sophie Harper Pave Circle Drop Earrings were my favorite piece in this box. They were simple and pretty, a great look if you work in an office. They could easily go from day to night. I ultimately declined them, because they were too safe and boring. I work at home in my jeans and when I go out, I like to dress-up and have fun with it. These earrings are too conservative and safe.
The Kendra Scott Calvin Ring in Iridescent Drusy was a fun pick. It wasn't on my wishlist, but I think it was included, because I mentioned how much I loved the stone in the earrings that I had received in my third box. It's the same iridescent drusy stone. The stone is still pretty, it absolutely glitters. The problem with the ring, is the stone is too small to make a statement. I also didn't care for the geometric shape. I have a few Kendra Scott pieces and I find them to be very hit or miss. I often like the colors, but dislike the shape or size.
The pretty red nail polish is OPI's Amore at the Grand Canal. This week, a pro manicure!
